Traveller’s Tales’ series of LEGO
I consider myself a hardcore gamer, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love Traveller’s Tales’ series of LEGO-adapted titles. Whether it’s LEGO Batman, playing as a LEGO Short Round in LEGO Indiana Jones, or Freddie Mercury’s insane mustache in LEGO Rock Band, I’ve had some of my most happiest gaming experiences running around in the worlds fashioned by TT Games. And none so much as the company’s crown jewels, the LEGO Star Wars 1 and 2. Something about the mashup of my childhood’s greatest movie series and my childhood’s greatest toy is sweet high-def nirvana. It was an untoppable game…or so I thought.
Fresh off TT Games’ announcement that LEGO Star Wars 3 would be coming out on Feburary 15, 2011, I got some hands-on time with the game, and I can safely say that this is one of those titles that’ll break down the wall between “hardcore” and “casual” gamers. It’s bigger, more ambitious, and potentially better than any LEGO title yet! I am currently playing Lego Harry Potter years 1-4 with my daughter and it has been a blast. If your looking for some great family fun over the holidays pick up any of the Travellers Tale titles, you won’t be disappointed.
